Can I teach while getting my certification?
Teaching while still on the path to teaching
The short answer is: It depends.
In general you should at least earn your teaching certification before being allowed to run your own classroom. If you're participating in a "Teach for America" program or a similar program, then you may be able to teach even without credentials for a time. You can also look into becoming a substitute teacher. After earning a college degree, some districts may allow you to substitute teach. There are other exceptions, particularly in areas suffering from a shortage of teachers.
